Camp Doll Diaries OFFICIALLY starts on Monday – even though we have been talking about it and doing pre-camp crafts for months!! I will be doing my best to post the supply list (and a sneak peek of the theme) for each week on the Friday or Saturday before.

That’s right – Outdoor Explorers is the theme for our first week! The theme was inspired by American Girl historical characters Kirsten and Kaya and will feature plenty of outdoor activities, classic camp crafts, and play inspiration for your dolls!

In addition to our summer-long sponsors, iLoveToCreate (use DOLLDIARIES for 10% off at, Kunin Felt and Coats and Clark, we will have The Queen’s Treasures (use DOLLDIARIES for an extra 10% off at as a weekly sponsor and Sculpey Clay will be a sponsor one day as well!! You know this is going to be a GREAT week.  

A few things to remember as we start camp:

  • Do as many or as few projects and activities as you wish – you can always come back to something later
  • Use our posts as INSPIRATION. Camp Doll Diaries is not meant to be expensive – it is meant to inspire crafting, play and imagination – use what you have on hand and modify as needed.
  • SHARE what you create! Email camp photos ONLY to (note, that is different from our normal address), post your photos on our Facebook wall, pin your photos and use #campdolldiaries on Pinterest, share photos on Instagram using #campdolldiaries, too. 

Have a great weekend!

PS – If you are wondering where today’s Doll Diaries Picks of the Week post is, well, it isn’t going to happen this week. I am really going through the checklist to make sure everything is really ready to go for camp.
